With the support of Horseshoe Casino, Harrah’s staff and Meals On Wheels Board Member and Chef/Manager of Horseshoe Casino – Hammond, Kara Eaton, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana was able to gain the attention of celebrity chef Paula Deen during her recent show at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN.
At the end of her show, Paula expressed how glad she was to be associated with the moral and community-minded people of Horseshoe. She then went on to raise awareness about senior hunger by noting that one in nine seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States.
Paula also took the Pledge to End Senior Hunger by 2020 by signing Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana’s End Senior Hunger tablecloth.
Staff and Board Members of the local Meals on Wheels program were able to enjoy the afternoon with Paula, courtesy of Horseshoe Casino – Hammond who donated tickets to the event.
